Pearl Milk Tea

Cedric, what’s the most famous beverage you can think of?
In France, champagne of course. In the rest of the world, cola.
In Taiwan, possibly the most famous drinks is pearl milk tea. Did you know that Taiwanese people consume more than 100 million glasses of it a year.
Who would’ve thought a tea that you chew would become so popular? And it’s picking up in the US and in Europe, too. There are a few shops in Paris, though the price there is a joke.
Did you know that the pearl milk tea actually came from the bubble iced tea, which is basically cold tea shaken up with ice in a cocktail shaker.
Like this?
Looking good. The bubbles make the tea taste smoother.
So with pearl milk tea, you add milk or creamer into the tea, and then you stir it, you shake it up and you pour the tea into the pearls, right?
Yeah. The pearls are tapioca balls, which are made of a starchy root and sugar. After you boil them, they turn into something really sweet and chewy and tasty.
The pearls come in different sizes, right?
Speaking of different sizes, different colors as well.
Like people.
So this is white pearl milk tea.
Not just white, black and white. This is panda milk tea. It's always nice to have the chewy texture. It's like eating and drinking at the same time. How about you?
I think that all tapioca are create equal.
So deep.
And you should come.
 
台灣珍奶讚 年喝一億杯

Cedric, 世界上最有名的飲料是什麼?
在法國當然是香檳囉。不過在其他地方,可樂。
在台灣呢,最有名的飲料,可能就是珍珠奶茶了。台灣人每年喝掉一億杯耶。
沒想到一個要用牙齒嚼的茶會這麼受歡迎。妳知道嗎,現在美國和歐洲也越來越多了喔。不過在巴黎,貴得要命。
你知道珍奶來自泡沫紅茶嗎?泡沫紅茶基本上就是在手搖杯裡面瘋狂搖過的冰茶。
這樣搖嗎?
不錯喔。裡面的泡泡讓茶的口感比較順。
所以珍奶呢,就是把牛奶或奶精加到茶裡面,搖一搖,然後倒到珍珠上面對不對?
嗯。珍珠就是粉圓,是用澱粉和糖做的。煮過之後就變得又甜又彈牙又好吃。
然後珍珠還有不同大小,對不對?
不只不同大小,還有不同顏色。
跟人一樣。
這是白珍奶。
不只是白的,有黑有白,這是貓熊奶。有特殊口感真好,好像邊喝東西邊吃東西的感覺。妳覺得呢?
黑珍珠,白珍珠,都是珍珠啦。
好有深度啊。
所以大家要來喔。
